Youtube Block - 1.0
« on: June 10, 2012, 05:30:26 AM »
Youtube Block
v1.0

This block allows you to show a Youtube video within a block. I couldn't find an existing block that does this, so I decided to create one myself. The current version is 1.0 and I hope to release v1.1 soon.

Installing is very simple. Just create a new PHP code block and use this code:
Code: [Select]
/**
 * Youtube Block
 *
 * Written for: Simple Portal
 * Written by: Dr. Deejay
 * Compatible with: Simple Portal 2.3
 * Version: 1.0
 *
 * When using this block, you agree that you will,
 * not redistribute this block, with or without any
 * changes. This code may not be used as a base for
 * another software and should not be used for illegal
 * purposes.
*/

$youtube = array();

/**
 * Settings
*/
// The id of the video
$youtube['id'] = 't5AqJww06bw';

// Text to show below the video. Leave empty to disable
$youtube['label'] = 'My video';

// The size of the Youtube block. 1 is the smallest, 3 is the biggest
$youtube['size'] = 1;

/**
 * The Youtube video display block
*/
if(!function_exists('sp_youtube')) {

/**
* The function doesn't exist yet. Create it.
*/
function sp_youtube($vid = '', $label = '', $size = '')
{
// Don't allow html stuff
$vid = htmlspecialchars($vid);

// Check if it is empty. If it is, it's invalid
if(empty($vid))
echo '
<div class="smalltext">Video not found.</div>';

// Let's see what we can do.
else {

// Echo the thing.
echo '
<div class="centertext">
<iframe ' . $size . ' src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/' . $vid . '" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>';

// Show a label?
if(!empty($label))
echo '
<br /><div class="smalltext">' . $label . '</div>';

echo '
</div>';
}
}
}

// Generate the height and width
if($youtube['size'] == 1)
$vidsize = 'width="150" height="100"';
elseif($youtube['size'] == 2)
$vidsize = 'width="300" height="200"';
elseif($youtube['size'] == 3)
$vidsize = 'width="1280" height="720"';
else
$vidsize = 'width="150" height="100"';

// Call the function
sp_youtube($youtube['id'], $youtube['label'], $vidsize);

Enjoy!

Just had a thought ( scary I know).

Is there a way you can make this pop out in a similar way as the Aeva media mod?

This time of morning I should be in bed lol

Basically when you click on an aeva image (hosted via the gallery) the block enlargens.

Okay forgive me because I haven't gone over the code with a fine tooth comb yet....I love it by the way and am going to try it!  Is there a way to input a YOUTUBE channel somehow and have it bring up a random vid from the channel whenever someone visits the page?  I hope that makes sense.

@Lolafish: I don't know if Youtube has an api for that, but I could try. Thanks for the suggestion. :)

I think there is something Facebook uses.
Have not heard of a code. It would have to be an RSS or XML of some kind.

All I could find was this:
To access your YouTube RSS feed you need to replace YOURCHANNELNAME is the following URL:

http://www.youtube.com/rss/user/YOURCHANNELNAME/videos.rss

And to show you how it is formatted you can look at the VDO.me YouTube channel (work in progress!):

YouTube Channel RSS

As you can see it includes your titles, descriptions, ratings, upload date, views count & video time length. It doesn’t however include your Video keywords, so this is another reason why it is important to put keywords within the video description.

Now that you know your YouTube RSS feed URL you can submit it to RSS Feed Aggregators either manually or via your chosen software.

This might work using a RSS block for the video .

I'm going to test it and update this posts.

Ok I am kinda getting this to work I used RSS Feed Poster by SMFhack is a mod at SMF it allowed me to set up RSS video feed in the forum.
I tried the RSS block and it gave and error for some reason the block wont process it correctly.
I find the RSS block very buggy and does not accept all RSS's

However you can setup a block and show the board you are updating the videos and that would be a work around for you.
In other words the block would show the youtube update board and posts.

Remember : go where the youtube channel is, not the video or it wont work.

Good luck.
